Acupuncture

The Art of Acupuncture

Our office utilizes traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Ah-Shee Acupuncture for both symptomatic relief and increasing range of motion in body regions that are affected with injury. The art of acupuncture is simple: it is the application of needles to balance excess or deficient energies (pathologies) in the body. By applying these needles below the top layer of the skin, we can help bring balance to the body. Acupuncture originated in China over five thousand years ago. Today, the World Health Organization has recognized a list of conditions shown to respond well to acupuncture treatment.

Some of these conditions include:

  • Sinusitis
  • Bronchitis
  • Headaches and Tooth Aches
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Peripheral Neuropathies
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Sciatica
  • Low Back Pain
  • Osteoarthritis
